Conundrum

How interesting, this rusted trunk, long buried and now thrust onto my path.
And do I dare to pull that magic ring;
to open and unveil
-- could it be treasure?
or something quite unwanted --
whatever's hiding there.
Perhaps it isn't even mine,
but someone else's long-dead dreams or fears discarded here,
alluring to the hopeful traveler
who wandered here in search of truth...
Or could it be Pandora's Box?
What to do, what to do...

Take the risk.

This image is intriguing - so beautiful, it seems it couldn't have happened by chance. Your capture of the magic definitely wasn't by chance - you knew what you were doing!
